Professor John Hodges is the head of the Hodges Group with Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). Professor Hodges trained in medicine and psychiatry in London, Southampton and Oxford before gravitating to neurology and becoming enamoured by neuropsychology. In 1990, he was appointed a University Lecturer in Cambridge and in 1997 became MRC Professor of Behaviour Neurology. A sabbatical in...

Role: Senior Lecturer Field: Neurosciences, Psychology and Cognitive Sciences, Biological Psychology (Neuropsychology, Psychopharmacology, Physiological Psychology), Neurocognitive Patterns and Neural Networks
ABOUT ME   Biography My research explores the uniquely human capacity to remember the past and to imagine the future, with particular emphasis on how these processes are compromised in neurodegenerative disorders. My current approach uses novel experimental tasks in conjunction with advanced neuroimaging techniques to understand the foundations of memory and imagination. Education PhD in...

Faculty: Medicine & Health Role: Senior Lecturer
Research Interests:The broad research focus of the lab is to examine cellular and molecular mechanisms that may cause or prevent brain cell death resulting from an acute brain injury (ie perinatal asphyxia, stroke, trauma). Drugs with neuroprotective potential are routinely investigated in cell lines, brain tissue cultures and in vivo rat injury models as part of a search for new therapeutic...
